“What lies behind us and what lies before us, are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
What motivates me – Deepening the understanding of oneself by connecting mind and body to create harmony.
My Yoga style – I believe in creating harmony in all aspects of our lives. I try create balance in my classes, flowing through both easy and challenging poses creating a space for you to challenge yourself and then having a space to relax and be at ease. Exploring our mind and body expect a little meditation and breath control in the mix.
What motivates me – My love for teaching and the hope of waking up
My yoga style – I’ve always tried to emphasise getting clear on the basics to create a strong foundation. This means focusing on the underlying principles of yoga so that people can understand the reasons behind the practice. My classes are workshop based with a lot of detail in the instruction. I believe if you get the basics right, the fancy stuff will sort itself out. And meditation: don’t forget the meditation part 🙂
As someone who once struggled to touch her toes, she has made it her mission to debunk the perception that yoga is only for the flexible.
Her vinyasa flow classes are well rounded, challenging but accessible & she is renowned for her quirky sense of humour & kick ass playlists that uplift & inspire.
After teaching for 9 years I can say with certainty that aspects of this practice and the way one guides people through it, change; all – the – time!
One of the most profound things that I have learnt is to stop straining and pushing and to instead practise EASE. Finding ways in your yoga practice to move and breathe and feel what is really going on while you are practising … and then understanding and experiencing what it means to move with ease IN YOUR OWN BODY. This inevitably will flow over into the rest of your life.
So you come to a class, and together we’ll figure out what works for you, and where you can let go a bit … or a whole lot!
It’s a symbioses, where we all benefit from practising ease.
In 2015 Sajiv completed a Vinyasa yoga teacher training facilitated by Living Yoga and immediately took the opportunity to teach.
He draws inspiration from ancient yogic texts, dance, music and life in general to teach classes that require not only strength and focus, but also bring a very playful element to your practise. His classes are mentally and physically uplifting and challenging as he loves doing backbends, arm balances and being upside down in inversions to look at things from a different perspective.
